Unknown bug eating my vegetables!


I have a raised vegetable patch and over the last few days a large number of my sprouting broccoli and sprout plants have been eaten.

I've managed to get a few photos of the small creatures which are causing the damage:

If anyone could let me know how I can deal with these little critters, I'd greatly appreciate it. I fear in a few more days I'll have nothing left.

    Tradition is just peer pressure from dead people
